Moments with God

New Testament Bible Reading Plan

Day 8

No wonder you can’t believe! For you gladly honor each other, but you don’t care about the honor that comes from the one who alone is God. John 5:44

Day 8 Bible Reading Plan

Dear Lord,

I just want to begin this post today praising You and thanking You for bringing us together to read Your word. To You alone, I give the honor and the glory for moving in each of our lives as we read Your word. In the name of Jesus, Amen 

Our reading assignment for February 8th is John 5

Study Questions on John 5

Why do you think Jesus chose that particular lame man out of the multitude of diseased people (5:7)? (See also Luke 19:10.)

Did the lame man demonstrate any faith? Why might this be significant? Why do you suppose Jesus asked, “Do you want to get well?” (John 5:6). Why wasn’t that a stupid question?

Imagine being a paralyzed beggar waiting thirty-eight years for an improbable cure. Yet Jesus spoke of “something worse” (5:14). What could it be? (See Matthew 16:26.)

Is it possible to quit sinning? (See Romans 7:14-20.) Why did Jesus tell him to stop? (See Romans 3:19-31,7:21-25.)

Why did Jesus deliberately violate the sacrificial laws (5:16-18)? (See also Matthew 12:1-14.)

What do you observe about Jesus from John 5:17-18?

What observations can you make about Jesus’ relationship with His Father (5:19-23)?

(Compare 8:28,12:48-49,14:10.) In what sense was He dependent on His Father?

What do you see Jesus promising in 5:24? How does one receive these promises?

Jesus presented five witnesses who attested to His deity (5:31-39).  Who or what were they?

What obstacle to faith do you observe in 5:44? (See also 12:42-43.)

How does this still hinder people?

Oaks Of Righteousness

Isaiah 61:1-3 "The spirit of the Lord God is upon me, because the Lord has annointed me; He has sent me to bring good news to the oppressed, to bind up the brokenhearted, to proclaim liberty to the captives, and release to the prisoners; to proclaim the year of the Lords's favor, and the day of vengeance of our God; and to comfort all who mourn; to provide for those who mourn in Zion -- to give them a garland instead of ashes, the oil of gladness instead of mourning, the mantle of praise instead of a faint spirit. They will be called Oaks of Righteousness, the planting of the Lord, to display His glory.
